Odom Says Withdraw Troops or Impeach Bush

Lt. General William Odom – a retired three star Army General and President Reagan’s NSA chief, has been a critic of Bush for a long while. Most true conservatives are – in fact, most true thinkers are. Odom has, in the past, spoken out against Bush’s Iraq policy and their warrantless wiretapping.

But, this weekend he is sharpening his criticism – now saying that merely the approach Bush has taken with Congress in regard to military funding constitutes a high crime worthy of impeachment (I’d add: if they only had the courage.)

Odom said:

“An attempt to extort Congress into providing funds by keeping U.S. forces in peril.. surely would constitute the ‘high crime’ of squandering the lives of soldiers and Marines for his own personal interest.”

  1. I’m reading Thomas Ricks’ “Fiasco” right now. There were plenty of high ranking military folk who questioned the Iraq plan. Its good news but it might as well be Lamar Odom telling us to get out at this point. Pulling out is a difficult and lengthy process and one that Bush will be leaving to whoever we put in office in 08 and beyond. Complete FIASCO.
